A teenager with a warrant for failure to appear on a trespassing case saw an Albany police cruiser on Monday afternoon and ran — and racked up three additional trespassing charges as he went from property to property trying to evade authorities, a police spokesman said.
Martin Peter Stock, 18, was arrested on charges of first-degree criminal trespass, a felony, two counts of second-degree trespass, and interfering with a police officer.
The foot pursuit occurred in the area of 10th Avenue and Takena Street SW.
Police responded to the area at about 1:15 p.m. for a report of a male checking doors in the neighborhood. After he spotted law enforcement, Stock entered a house through the back door, surprising residents, then fled through two yards, ignoring an officer’s commands to stop, according to police.
Stock told police that he had been looking to use someone’s phone, the APD spokesman said.
The original charge that Stock reportedly failed to appear on was second-degree trespass, a misdemeanor.
